V8 race dispute settled

9:08 am on 13 April 2012

A family in dispute with the promoters of the V8 car race in Hamilton has settled out of court.

The family had applied for an injunction to stop next week's race, claiming the race made their lives a living hell as their home is on a corner of the street circuit.

A hearing was scheduled for Monday in Hamilton District Court, which has now been withdrawn.

The parties have now reached an agreement, with V8 Supercars paying a undisclosed-contribution towards the cost of alternative accommodation for the family.

The family says it will continue to pursue a claim for compensation for the effects the race had on them last year.
